The foundation of your Five-Element Acupuncture training

Module 1 can be started at any time. Sign up and you have immediate access to online films covering theory, philosophy and point location. You also have opportunities to attend face-to-face point location classes in London. The next step is to attend a Skills Workshop which develops your training by giving you access to a mentor, academic support, weekly live Zoom Q&A and Pop Quiz sessions and starts the clock on completing the assessment requirements. You will also take part in clinical observations and develop your skills in Chinese pulse-taking and sensory development. Once you have demonstrated your learning by passing the portfolio requirement, you can attend a face-to-face Five-Day Review. This intensive programme includes point location and theory exams; reviews all material taught at this level, engages you in interactive exercises with fellow students/patients and prepares you for Module 2.
